Whilst I wish we could wish away the pain and suffering that we are seeing through the natural disasters that are taking place. I want to take a moment to honor human nature. When Mother Nature ravaged our lands, we saw the best of our human nature. Thank you so much to all who serve and those who continue to do so.
The following are a collection of my photos of the my journey to Houston, Texas. As I witnessed and saw the destructions first hand. I took photo's but I also took the time to observe, take in the moments, and what my eyes saw first hand. Sometimes even a photo cannot truly convey what is felt through being human.

During my time volunteering I got a sense to engage with community, listen, learn, observe, and also to contribute. Through my walks I was able to see and even feel the damages. However, the spirit of strength was everywhere, which continues to inspire me today. The following are images from my visit to the University of Houston and also the Houston Dynamo Stadium.
We never know what tomorrow will bring, which is why we must always answer the call of the heart, if not we simply live a life of asking what if, or even regret. Sometimes this also means seeing beyond your current circumstance, and to take a chance. The following are my name badges that I wore at each location. I am proud to include America, USA as one of the countries of my 19 years of volunteer experiences. We will recover. There will be good days, and even days where we loose hope, or even patience. This is all a part of the healing process. Yet, our human instinct to survive is much more stronger, and I know this will see us through.
Dedication: These thoughts remain with all who are recovering from all of the natural disasters that we stand to witness today. To all who served and continue to serve, thank you. Our thoughts to share with love & Kindness.
